Swedish breakthrough in the development of biofuels

Swedish breakthrough in the development of biofuels

Sweden can be one step closer to a fossil-free fleet. This since the BioLi2.0 research project on a pilot scale managed to produce lignin-based biofuels that could work in common engines and be produced in existing oil refineries.
